Hartzler on Keystone veto: Obama continues to play politics with our prosperity

(From Fourth District Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler)

Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler (MO-04) made the following statement after President Obama vetoed the pro-growth, job-creating Keystone XL Pipeline Authorization bill:

“The American people have shown overwhelming support for the Keystone XL pipeline. With his veto, President Obama has chosen to ignore their wishes, putting environmental special interests ahead of American jobs and greater energy security. The president’s own State Department’s study has shown that the Keystone pipeline would have no significant impact on the environment while bringing over 42,000 American jobs into the economy. I am disappointed that the president continues to play politics with our prosperity.”

How does Canadian oil going to be sold on the Chinese and Indian markets help the US in any way, Canada has refineries on both coasts but the provinces won't allow a pipeline through their unspoiled wilderness, maybe we could learn from them.

A pipeline takes a lot of workers to install and these are high paying jobs and i would say it would take a few years to complete, so it would mean some good money to a lot of workers. I am a retired welder and when i worked in Joplin I made 15 bucks an hour when i traveled and done pipeline work i made 24 bucks a hour, so go figure.
